While legalization efforts, both for medical and recreational use, have gained momentum in recent years, marijuana still carries a high potential for abuse and addiction. It’s often seen as a less harmful drug than others, but addiction to marijuana is real, and especially for those with co-occurring mental health conditions, it can have serious consequences. At Honey Lake Clinic, our addiction treatment programs for adults help patients find lasting freedom from marijuana use and build a strong foundation for recovery in mind, body, and spirit.

Understanding Marijuana Addiction 

Marijuana contains a psychoactive compound called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which produces feelings of relaxation and euphoria when ingested. While some people may use marijuana occasionally without developing an addiction, others may develop a dependence on the drug, experiencing intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms when they try to stop using. Frequent marijuana use can also lead to increased tolerance, requiring people to use more and more of the drug to achieve the desired effects.  

There is also a link between marijuana use and mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and psychosis. In some cases, those struggling with underlying mental health conditions may turn to marijuana as a means of self-medication, leading to co-occurring disorders that require comprehensive and individualized treatment.  

Signs of Marijuana Addiction 

One of the reasons why the myth that marijuana is not addictive persists is because it doesn’t produce obvious physical withdrawal symptoms like other drugs do. However, marijuana use can still lead to psychological dependence, even if it doesn’t produce the same kind of chemical dependence as substances like alcohol or opioids. Signs that someone may be struggling with marijuana addiction include:

Using marijuana with other substances, such as alcohol or prescription medications, can also increase the risk of addiction. Ultimately, if someone feels like they can’t control their marijuana use and it’s negatively impacting their life, it may be a sign of addiction.
